What will you major in/study? Engineering
Why did you choose BU? “I chose Boston because academically and athletically it is a great fit for me. It’s a great start up program, with great talent in the coaching staff and a lot of potential to do big things; I want to be a crucial part of that. The school has an excellent reputation that I am excited for and going to a larger school in a big city is important to me. Finally, I really connected with Coach (Ryan) Polley and I am excited about what he has to give to the program.”
Outlook for your High School team? “With the loss of fourteen D1 players, our team is definitely in a bit of a building and growing year. However, with our great coaching staff in Coach Leahy, and Coach Resch, I know we will grow into the into the top caliber team we are known to be and will be a top contender for the State Championship again this year.”
Additional Comments: “I first want to thank my coaches, Bill Leahy, for shaping me into the goalie and person that I am today, the Legendary Tony Resch for his ability to turn anyone into a great lacrosse player, and Brian Harrington. I would also like to thank Mike Koons for warming me up everyday, Brian Dougherty for teaching me how to become a great goalie like he once was, my brothers Corey and Tyler for forcing me to become a goalie when we were kids, and my parents for paying my tuition.”
